German silver has actually been in existence since the 18th century. It was developed as an alternative to silver because silver was so expensive. It actually does not have any silver in the composition of the product rather is is an silver white alloy of copper, zinc, and nickel and sometimes may have a trace of tin or lead. It is a sturdy metal that is resistant to corrosion and durable in use.
